I know this is an old thread, but hey, charity never goes out of style.
A few interesting ones you may never have heard of:The Atheist Centre of India
Atheist Centre provides many services such as a Working Women's Hostel and a home for women with social problems.

Here are some things we're thinking about:Earthward, Inc
* We'll have shirts for our activities in public like "Atheist Volunteer" and "I do good things, and I don't believe in a God"
* Donation drives to assist in helping victims of natural disasters
* Engaging in environmental cleanups
* Hands on assistance for natural disasters.
* Clothing drives and toy drives for the needy
* Assistance at homeless shelters
* As we grow in size and find the right people, we want to go to impoverished nations to assist (hands on).
* All of our charity work will be tracked, records kept, pictures taken and available permanently for viewing.
Earth's Atheist Resistance To Holy Wars And Religious Devastation
EARTHWARD is a nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonmembership public-benefit charity organization that provides humanitarian relief aid to civilian victims of religiously motivated violence ranging from acts of violence by individual extremists or terrorist organizations that claim religious justification for their actions to full-scale holy wars waged by religiously dominated governments.
Typically, aid is provided in a form dictated by the particular needs of the victims. Some examples are food, water, temporary shelter and medical supplies.
